  Allergy Armor Vinyl Box Springs Cover
Reviewed by: Asthma sufferer from Maryville, TN

We bought our box springs cover with the expectation that it would help keep the dust down in our bedroom and help my asthma. The cover itself went on well however when I went to zip it closed the zipper came off of the cover completely and there was no way to put it back on. I used some stick on Velcro to close the vinyl box springs cover where the zipper failed to. Bottom line is you can't count on the zipper to work on this product and it does not have a secondary closure as some covers do. We decided not to send it back for a refund as it would be too much trouble send it back therefore we just made it work for us by use of the Velcro. [Editor's Note: We've had a difficult time with the quality of some of the vinyl covers and are in the process of replacing it with a better quality product for roughly the same price.]

Does what it is supposed to do. It was a tight fit, but overall the material is probably thick enough I don't think it will be ripping any time soon. Good, it works, 4/5 stars

THIS BOXSPRING COVER WAS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO PUT ON. MY HUSBAND AND I STRUGGLED AND HAD TO BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO TEAR IT. IT NEEDS TO BE MADE A LITTLE LARGER-I ORDERED A QUEEN WHICH WAS 9 INCHES BUT TOO TIGHT.

This does not require a great of explanation. It does what it says, period. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it runs a bit small and I had some trouble getting it on.

  Basic but it works . . .
Reviewed by: LH from Atlanta, GA

These are very basic, and the vinyl odor is strong for a while. I highly recommend airing them out for a good week before sleeping with them in your room. I do wish there was a 'low profile' box spring size for these. They are huge, hanging down to the floor beneath my box springs.
  LOVE IT

  Better than I thought
Reviewed by: Drowning at night from Santa Monica, California

I got the vinyl box spring cover because we were in a financial pinch and I had to get a cover on the mattress one way or another because of my allergies. I know it's not supposed to go on the mattress and it only has a life of 2-3 years, but for about $20.00, you can't go wrong. The "brand new swimming pool" scent went away with in minutes, unfortunately, because I actually liked the way it smelled. The construction was great. I had my husband help me with this, although not really necessary, and it took about a minute. Our mattress is much "fluffier" than others so the cover was a little tight, but works just fine for a both box spring cover and mattress cover. When it was almost zipped up, I pushed all the other air out not necessary with real mattress covers, zipped it up, and put duct tape on the outside of the zipper for extra protection from the mites. I know this sound horrible, but OK, here's the thing... IT WORKED! Since that day my allergies have stopped COMPLETELY. I wanted to make sure I had 100% no .03 or whatever that the dust mites would not have anyway out. This did it. We have so many soft covers on the mattress it didn't matter that it was vinyl and after having this now for two weeks, well still can't even tell it's on. No noise, no smell, no nothing. The material is like buttery soft, but very strong. My allergies were so horrible that I was going through almost an entire box of tissue every day and have almost lost jobs because it interfered with my sleep. My husband says my snoring has stopped and I breath easier while I'm sleeping. I can actually breath through my nose when I lay down. Now he can sleep better because of it. Overall, we love the cover and will get covers for all box springs and mattresses for the house. This is great for breaking the cycle of allergies to dust mites with out breaking our wallets.

This went on easily and I expect it will withstand the test of time. Another brand that we bought years ago tore when putting it on we had to tape the tear which worsened over time with each linen changing. I should've bought Allergy Armor the first time!
  XL twin box spring vinyl encasing by Allergy Armor
Reviewed by: Cinderella from Ohio

ALL college dorm or home bedding for XL twin beds should include mattress and box spring encasings! I was so glad to find these at a fair price. I even suggested it to a mom and daughter who who trying to decide what linens to buy for the dorm. I explained why and said to ditch the egg crate foam they were going to buy and to buy a box spring protector and mattress protector from Achoo Allergy!
  Nice product, but too small
Reviewed by: Sleeping Better from Wisconsin

I ordered these to put over some more expensive allergy covers bed bug approved since so many people seem to have issues with metal frames ripping covers. The weight of the vinyl was really nice so if someone is looking for a more heavy duty cover, this would be it. The size did not fit my split king boxsprings however, even though they are supposed to. They were a bit short and so I could not zip them shut. Since they were only being used as extra protection, I used them anyway, though I was disappointed in that. I eneded up putting the unzipped end at the end of the bed so it wasn't exposing the better cover underneath against anything that might rip it. I would have sent them back, but I wanted to get the beds covered and put back together quickly.
  Sleep Fresh Vinyl Encasing XL
Reviewed by: Mother of Son with allergies from Atlanta, Georgia

My son has allergies and he wanted to cover his twin XL mattress in his dorm room. The product was so easy to slide over the mattress and it fits perfectly. The vinyl material is translucent and is not like the white opaque vinyl covers sold in most stores. There is a slight vinyl odor but you can air out the product before putting it on the bed. I plan on purchasing this product again for the other beds in our home.
  Good Quality Product

I wasn't sure I needed the box spring cover but decided to encase it with these vinyl covers. They fit great and now I know my son will sleep better at night.
  I got what I expected
Reviewed by: Stuffy from Ladera Ranch, CA

I just bought new matresses and whated to dustmite proof them when they arrived. I ordered the encasings six days before the mattress scheduled delivery date. The encasing arrived well before the mattresses arrived. The encasings slipped on easily over the box springs and the mattress delivery men even offered to put them on for me. I have a king bed so it would have been a little difficult to install the encasing alone. Once installed and with the bedding, I can't tell they are there, and I assume that the dust mites are under control.

A bit of a struggle to put on the box spring, definitely 2 person job but well worth the effort!
  Good investment
Reviewed by: Allergy sufferer from Houston

I mistakenly bought a king size not realizing I had 2 twins for a box spring. The cover was sturdy enough that it survived the tugging and pulling needed to cover both twins. It was not flimsy at all and was fairly easy to put on with 2 people.
  No-Frills Solution
Reviewed by: Lulu from New Hampshire

I was buying Allergy Armor for my mattress and wanted something for the box spring, too. At first I was reluctant to put vinyl around my boxspring, fearing the odor and crinkling that often comes with this type of plastic. When my Sleep Fresh Vinyl Box Spring Encasement arrived, I opened it and noticed it was made of a tough but soft vinyl. I proceeded to put my box spring into the encasement, and then back onto the bed frame with no problem you'll need a 2nd person to help you with all steps. There was no crinkling at all while getting into bed, and after the first two days of use there was no plastic odor left. The encasements appear to reduce my overnight stuffiness from the dust mite allergies I've had for years.
  heavy duty box spring cover
Reviewed by: allergic to everything from Memphis, Tennessee

I was suprised at the quality of this box spring cover. I had purchased one for my son's bed from another company, and it was a very light weight vinyl. This one is nice and heavy, and a good quality for the money.
  Effective but Delicate
Reviewed by: Sara from Connecticut

This box spring cover is incredibly delicate--if you have plastic corners or any exposed staples on your box spring, be very ginger when putting the cover on because it rips very easily. The cover will also emit a new plastic smell for a few days. If you don't want to deal with this, air it out outside for a day or two. It's a nice looking product and, if you don't rip it, does the trick.
  A Must Have: Boxspring Cover
Reviewed by: JC from Minneapolis, MN

How many of you dread cleaning under your bed because of pesky dust mites (and pet dander) that thrive down there? I did until I discovered the vinyl boxspring cover. Now that I have one, I've noticed a decrease in my allergies when I clean under the bed. I also have a better peace of mind knowing the mites and dander that do exist aren't infiltrating my bed. And about the vinyl, the smell was minimal the first day then non-existant after that. I'm sensitive to smells and this cover didn't bother me at all. Another bonus of this product: not only does it minimize the dander in bed, it keeps the cat from hiding inside the boxspring. Bad for her, good for me.

My husband has not slept well for years, bothered by asthma symptoms that were only somewhat relieved by inhalers and other medications. HIs doctor recommended mattress and pillow coverings. We have had the Sleep Fresh Vinyl Box Spring Encasing and the Allergy Armor Allersoft Mattress Encasing on the bed for just two nights, and the change has been instantaneous. My husband has experienced two nights of wonderful restful sleep, breathing comfortably. Finally, some real relief without more medication! It really works. Great Products!
  getting allergies under control
Reviewed by: allergy sufferer from Green Bay, WI

I was very excited to receive these encasings since my allergies are terrible. When I opened the first one, it went on alright. I opened the second one and it already had a tear along the seam. Because I wanted to use them I didn't return it or I wouldn't have anything for my other box spring. The first one ended up tearing when we set it down on the frame. I was very disappointed in the overall encasings because after all the research I did to find what I thought were wonderful encasings, they weren't that at all. We were very gentle putting them on the boxsprings (they went on fine) and very gentle setting them down so I don't know why the second one tore in the first place unless there was already a tear that we missed seeing before we put it on.

  Smelly at first
Reviewed by: Peter M. from New Haven, CT

Fortunately, I read the directions before putting this on my box springs. When you take it out of the packagaing it stinks (like all plastic). I set it outside and let it air out for a few days. When I began to install it, I was very careful putting it around the corners, because I had some sharp edges, staples, nails, in the box springs. I could have easily ripped the box spring cover if I didn't pay attention, and take my time. These are an economical solution and do a fine job.
  They fit
Reviewed by: an allergy sufferer from VA

I was pleased that they fit. Knowing that the odor of plastic would cause an allergic response, I aired them outside for 4 days. They still emit an odor that gives me a sore throat. I am running a deoderizer in hopes that if will subside. I note this problem with the understanding that all plastic emits odors, but may need to be aired, etc.
